Macora Walk Trail is a 2km, grade 2 Circuit hike located in Byford Hills Western Australia. The hike should take approximately 0.75hrs to complete.


The Macora Trail, often called the Byford Hills Walk Trail, is a 1.6 kilometre loop walk. The trail starts at Macora Falls, returning via Brown Street, Stevenson Place and Bradshaw Road. This moderate level track includes some steep sections but the views make it worth it!

Macora means ‘wet season’ in the local indigenous language. Some of the granite outcrops are thought to be 400 million years old.  From the high points in the trail there are views over Kwinana and even to Perth.  Points of interest include an historic water tank and, beside the quarry face, the site of the old 1914 brickworks. Wildlife to look for includes blue wrens, red tailed cockatoos, fantails and parrots.  Flora in the jarrah and marri forests includes wattles, grasstrees, myrtles, grevilleas, hakeas, and in spring blue lady orchids and fringe lillies.
